World Cup 2022: A list of all the World Cup winners 

World Cup 2022

The World Cup 2022 is here and it’s being held in Qatar.

This world cup is like no other – firstly it’s being held in December, and will be the shortest world cup to date. The teams heading to Qatar will be going with little training time – the Premier League played its last game on Sunday, and it will now return on Boxing Day. 

With little prep time and a December tournament, few teams are feeling optimistic about the World Cup.

France go into the Qatar world cup as the reigning champions  – they won for the second time in 2018.  

But it’s Brazil who remains the most successful team, having won five titles and most believe they’re likely to win the 2022 tournament.
